Totally experience was beyond amazing. Private trip was worth it. Kyle was wonderful hot air balloon pilot and John was the best driver round trip to our hotel.

Be prepared for a super early start, great fun, being high up is not nearly as fun as hugging the canyon floor and staying super low

It's not windy up in the balloon. A selfie stick would work fine.

They picked us up from a hotel near the airport. I'm sure if you call them they'll be able to arrange that for you. The driver was awesome and really made the drive up a lot of fun. Even at 5 a.m.
